Blog Tour: The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates

I’m super excited to be part of the Blog Tour for this hilarious and heart-warming adventure. Thank you to Fritha for inviting me to be part of the Tour, and to Jenny for writing a guest post.

Today I will be sharing a post about challenges from Jenny Pearson, and a link to my review. I have let all the children in my class know about the Freddie Yates Superhero Challenges over on the Usborne YouTube site, as I think they will really love taking part in them.

Who doesn’t love a challenge?

by Jenny Pearson

Maybe it’s just me but I love a challenge. I love giving things ago and I honestly don’t mind if I fail. Many of my school reports said Jenny is a real trier or what she lacks in ability she makes up for in ambition and I’m proud of that. My sister says I’m the only person she knows who can get a question staggeringly wrong in Trivial Pursuit and still congratulate themselves for being on the right lines. I told her teachers call that growth mindset these days. She tells me she calls it an alarming detachment from reality. That might be so, but sometimes you simply have to have a bash at things. I say throw yourself into trying a new skill, blurt out that answer even if you’re fairly certain it’s not the right one, try running a marathon in flippers if that’s what you fancy. I’d rather have a go at something than not try it at all. I’d definitely enter the onion eating competition with Freddie, Ben and Charlie, I’d also give one of Phyllis’s weird marmite and marmalade sandwiches a go, I’d even try to cycle a tandem across Wales in inappropriate clothing and very little forward planning. And I’d definitely try the Freddie Yates Superhero Challenges over on the Usborne YouTube site. In fact, I think you are probably all Superheroes and no Superhero I ever heard of got anywhere sitting around doing nothing in their underpants.

Mind you, there’s always a first time for everything, maybe there will be a Captain Sit-Around-In-Your-Underpants who saves the world. And in that case, you should definitely do the design your own underpants challenge, because even slovenly superheroes should be stylish. 

So off you go…over to YouTube…yes, I  mean now.  No time like the present.

The link to the Freddie Yates Superhero Challenges over on the Usborne YouTube site is:

This is THE most wonderful, action-packed and exciting adventure:  heart-warming and hilarious with three adorable young boys who have such a gorgeous, genuine relationship.  I absolutely loved going on their laugh-out-loud adventure through Wales!  From the many moments of sheer comic genius to heartfelt revelations, this really is a brilliant story that captured me from the opening and left me sighing with contentment and smiling rather broadly – and just maybe ever so slightly tearful – in a good way!

    1. Thank you! It’s such a great book – and would be perfect for class read! I’ve asked my class to do the superhero challenge – I’m getting some fab photos. Just need to get parents permission to send them to Usborne.

      1. Oh fantastic!! I can imagine classes in FITS of laughter and then all wobbly with tears- it’s such a raw and resonating book in its honesty about that cusp of adolescence.
